Just kidding… (Not about my birthday – it is today!) But the adorable 10-week old mongrel named Rosebud is not mine. She was rescued from a kill shelter in Georgia by In Our Hands Rescue and just in the nick of time entrusted with the happy family of Kirstin Bailey, EVP of Interior Design at the Ian Schrager Company. (She designed the new Edition hotel in Miami for example, where I stayed during Art Basel.) Clearly, Rosebud was meant for bigger and better things… Like modeling my birthday gifts from Hueb!
Hueb is a beautiful jewelry line I discovered a few weeks ago on Madison Avenue. They’re from Brazil and just opened in October 2014. The website doesn’t do the jewelry justice I find. You should really visit the store; it’s a lesson in romance. Their collections are classic, delicate, timeless and elegant, “made by women, for women”. With age I feel I am drawn to understated, fine jewelry, rather than the chunky, fun stuff I used to wear. I’m sure it’s just a phase – I must be influenced by the 90s, as is everyone else – but I feel these pieces tell a different story about me. I’m not a kid anymore. I am a woman, as tough as it is to admit sometimes, with a soft spot for lyrical courtship and soft, graceful intelligence. It’s OK to be sweet and vulnerable. I just needed a dog, some cashmere and pretty shiny things to remind myself. Happy Birthday to me!
